I used a stencil to get the rim of the bowl in at least a bit of a round :D
AR3, watercolour , I must admit I ate one of the oranges while doing this and now I have to clean off my sticky stylus :D

The lady knows how to work he highlights!

Very cool textures of the items depicted. Very trompe l'oel. (spelling? - 'fool the eye' is the translation.)

Very successful. Nice job.

Hahahaha. Yeah, it's the age old problem of artists -- it's hard to resist models sometimes. :D

The other is having them melt or shrink under hot lights, so mind wax fruit. Thank goodness for cameras. But a sticky stylus is a very amusing image. I have to force myself to not eat when I paint for that messy reason. I used to expect to get paint on everything, but never food in the paint.

Good texture tricks with the highlights. :):):)
